New Era approached the MFTF in the wake of mounting fears among residents of the town of another flood, like the one of February this year, which devastated property worth N$100 million and displaced many families from their homes.

Chairman of the MFTF, Piet Heyns, told New Era that the clearing of the Fish River as proposed by many people would be an extremely expensive exercise.
